The St. Lawrence String Quartet will give a free performance of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross. In this seven-section work, lasting just over an hour, Haydn is at his most reflective. Evoking the last hours of Christ’s life, the work’s individual sections carry tempo markings of Largo, Adagio, Lento, Grave. In this performance, and as it was written, Seven Last Words will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service by Rev. Scotty McLennan, Dean for Religious Life at Stanford.
Presented in partnership with Music at Stanford and the Office for Religious Life.
Free Event. Tickets will be available at the door only.
